I replaced the compressor.
That one bolt is just a bliotch. Once I got a pointer from Scott, it made it much easier. Still a pain in the arse to get the compressor bolts in and out and the compressor in that tight space.
That being said, its an 'easy' job, just stressful because it doesnt go super easy the first time. I think if I had to do it agian, it would be much easier, because I know what to expect.
My steps for next time- Remove passenger fenderwell cover. Remove accumulator, remove manifold, remove ground wires, remove compressor mounting bolts, remove compressor, reinstall compressor & bolts, reinstall manifold, reinstall ground wires, R&R orifice tube, reinstall accumulator. reinstall fenderwell cover.
Oh yea, and drink a beer before you start the project. I have done entire suspension and brake jobs and had less grease/dirt on me than from replacing this compressor. what a mess.
I'm a wh0re for free stuff
